Yesterday, 3/2, while our Airforce was dropping food to Gazans being starved by Israel, over 100 airstrikes were indiscriminately dropped in 15 minutes concentrated in northern and eastern Khan Younis and south and east of Deir Al-Balah in the southern and central Gaza. While I am glad that the U.S. has stepped up to drop aid, not only is it woefully insufficient, Israel then dropped bombs we provided them to murder more Palestinians. As of today, Israel has continue to besiege a large residential complex in Khan Younis. The people are surrounded by tanks and are murdered if they try to leave. The violence has never been confined to Gaza - yesterday Professor Tayseer Al-Jaber was abducted and detained without charge after Israeli forces stormed his home in Tulkarm, West Bank. Israel has abducted approximately 7,340 Palestinians from the West Bank since 10/7, whose fates are unknown as they are tortured in death camps, "military prison". Amnesty International has outlined the irrefutable evidence that Israel's Flour Massacre on 2/29, where over 112 people being starved by Israel were murdered and over 750 were wounded after Israeli forces indiscriminately fired into a crowd waiting for food, was an intentional act. Israel's story has changed multiple times, and no version has coincided with the reality of what they did and continue to do. As of 3/3, approximately 30,400 - 38,000 Palestinians have been murdered in Gaza since 10/7. Their blood is on your hands. I demand that you:  - Call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire - Call for the immediate end of Israel's occupation and apartheid and support Palestinians in their fight for freedom and peace - Hold Israel accountable for their violations of the Genocide Convention and all other international laws by any means necessary - Secure the immediate release and safety of all Palestinians who have been abducted and held captive by Israel, including those whose indefinite detention began prior to 10/7 - Permanently end all monetary, diplomatic, and military aid given to Israel and enforce Leahy Law - Reallocate all funds given to Israel and commit additional resources for ongoing humanitarian relief for Palestinians starting with immediately resume funding of UNRWA - Immediately withdraw all U.S. troops, military assets, and all other assets deployed throughout the Middle East and cease all actions that further escalate a larger regional conflict - Pass legislation that voids all anti-BDS laws at the federal level - Restore my right to free speech and the freedom of the press by condemning all discrimination or harassment for criticizing any government or political ideology (including zionism) and by doing everything possible to prevent future assaults to my rights, including governmental control and/or censorship of the Internet
